WAM Feb 16 Michael Wert
Michael Wert is a writer and researcher with a passion for the stories of the Blue Puttees. Who were they? What were they like? How did the war affect them?
If you are related to a member of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment who served in World War I, then perhaps you could help Michael tell those important, human stories.
Michael plans a television documentary hoping that in truth, we will always remember. When The Boys Came Home: The Blue Puttees After the Great War. What got him started? He found a copy of the inaugural 1920 Blue Puttees reunion program.
Today, Michael is in Corner Brook and hopes you will come out and meet him, perhaps share a family story.
I spoke with Michael this week and asked him what he imagines the documentary will look like.
